Your McKinney Christian Academy Lady Mustangs raced out to a 4-0 record on the season with a 48-24 pasting of the visiting Paris Home School Warriors Tuesday night.
MCA will try to keep its perfect record intact in its next game, Monday, Nov. 21, at home vs. the HSAA Angels at 6:30 at the MCA Joshua Gymnasium.
In the victory over Paris, the Mustangs defense set the tone early with a trapping half court zone limiting the Warriors to two long range bank shots. Meanwhile the Mustangs leading scorer, Kaitlynn McAdams, hit for 8 herself and point Julie James added a bucket as MCA went up 10-5 after one.
McAdams and James combined for all of the points in the second quarter as well, with 6 apiece and the defense continued to trouble Paris who settled for 6 and a 22-11 halftime deficit. It was the third quarter, however, that was the defining period of the evening as the rest of the Mustangs starters got on the scoreboard and the Mustang defense got even stingier. McAdams continued to pour in points with 8 more and starters Nat Lemieux, Sidney Thompson and Sarah Grubbs added baskets as MCA outscored the Warriors 16-1 in the stanza for a 38-12 lead.
